RCMP seek information in two unsolved murders

The RCMP are looking for help with investigations into two separate murders that have remained unsolved for years.

Monday marks the 20th anniversary of the murder of Raymond Paul Chase and the 10-year-anniversary of the murder of Jerell Aaron Wright.

On the night of May 13, 1999, Chase was shot when getting out of his truck in his Dartmouth driveway.

The 34-year-old died instantly.

The RCMP say the killer then ran to a waiting vehicle near the victim's driveway, and jumped in the passenger seat before the vehicle fled the scene.

On May 13, 2009, Wright was standing in a shared driveway in North Preston when a series of gunshots were fired in his direction from a vehicle driving by.

The 19-year-old was hit and later died in hospital.

The investigation has led police to believe Wright was not alone in the driveway when he was shot and that he was not the intended target.

The Mounties are asking anyone with information on either murder to contact Halifax District RCMP (902-490-5020) or Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-8477).

Both cases are part of the Nova Scotia's Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program which offers up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.

The rewards line is 1-888-710-9090.
